Another blow to Global-Warming's "credibility"

Hmmmmmm. . .the "settled science" of the Nobel Prize winning IPCC isn't so settled after all:

The Indian head of the UN climate change panel defended his position yesterday even as further errors were identified in the panel's assessment of Himalayan glaciers.

[. . .]

The IPCC’s 2007 report, which won it the Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers “disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high”.

But it emerged last week that the forecast was based not on a consensus among climate change experts, but on a media interview with a single Indian glaciologist in 1999.

The IPCC admitted on Thursday that the prediction was “poorly substantiated” in the latest of a series of blows to the panel’s credibility.

    Fr. Powell,

    Thank you for keeping the world informed.

    There is a global crisis and it presents an age hold conflict of greed versus understanding.

    Some people will swindle trillions out of those who can least afford to pay in the form of carbon trading and regulations that block true innovation and protect big business agendas.

    I would be interested in knowing what the Pontifical Academy of the Sciences is doing to protect the interests of sound science these days?

    Looks like there is some congressional interest in reviewing how the EPA reached its conclusion to regulate CO2.
